Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Walking with God

Two men in the first chapters of Genesis are said to have “walked with God”—but with differing outcomes.  Oh yes, both were approved by Him, but God’s plan for each was unique and remarkable.

Enoch “walked with God” and escaped death; God took him up to heaven just like that!  What a way to go!  He lived only 365 years–young in those days (Genesis 5:21-24).

Noah also “walked with God” (Genesis 6:9).  But God had other plans for him, including preserving human and animal life for over a year on the ark while the earth was flooded.  He lived a normal (for then) lifespan of 350 years and became the ancestor of everyone on earth today.

So if I “walk with God,” what will my life be?  That’s up to Him. I may live long or be taken prematurely.  From a human perspective, I may be successful or ordinary.  Be that as it may, I want to live each day as He unfolds it, walk with Him and please Him.
